The 60-feet wide road will connect Shah Amanat Bridge road from Sirajuddowla Road via Bakalia Bagarbill. The mega project titled ‘Bakalia Access Road’ got approval from the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) on September 6 of this year with a total outlay of Tk205.46cr. The town planners and engineers of the CDA are highly optimistic that the traffic congestion in the northern and eastern part of the city would be reduced to a great extent due to the construction of the access road. After implementation of the four-lane road, the city people will be able to reach important locations within a very short time. The city people will not have to take a long detour of 7-8km for reaching the heart of the city and it will be possible to reach Shah Amanat Bridge from Sirajuddowla Road travelling just a distance of 1.53km. Referring to the exorbitant cost of the project, the CDA engineers said that a large sum of money to the tune of Tk180cr would be spent for acquiring 34.83 acres of land for constructing the access road. The compensation for demolishing some establishments has also been included in the project. Moreover, four box culverts, 10 cross culverts, 1221km long retaining wall, 3km long drain on both sides of the road will be constructed for implementing the project. Talking to the Dhaka Tribune, CDA Chairman Abdus Salam said that the much awaited project which was proposed in the Master Plan of 1995 could not see the light of the day due to various complications. “Communication is a prerequisite for any infrastructural development of a city. Bakalia is a thickly populated area of the port city which is inhabited by around 600,000 people. The project will be the fulfillment of a long-cherished dream of the residents of Bakalia area. The area would undergo a sea of changes after completion of the mega project,” said the CDA Chairman.
